03 5441 6176 03 5444 4299 admin@orm.com.au CAUTION: RESEARCH ON UNREGISTERED PESTICIDE USE Any research with unregistered pesticides or of unregistered products reported in this document does not constitute a recommendation for that particular use by the authors, the authors' organisations or the management committee... In summary, it could be argued that none of the currently available preemergence herbicides have the required stability in efficacy to become viable alternatives to postemergence group A or imidazolinone herbicides... Overall, 2012 seasonal conditions tended to favour early and mid flowering and maturing varieties...

" Date: 24.09.2010 IMPROVING PROFITABILITY OF IRRIGATED SORGHUM THROUGH PARTIAL IRRIGATION OF LARGER AREAS.. Two main management strategies were used by growers in the 2007/08 season: (1) full irrigation, involving two irrigations, one prior to anthesis, and another at or soon after anthesis, and (2) partial irrigation, usually consisting of a single irrigation of greater than 1 ML/ha, timed to coincide with flowering... The broad objective of this research was to assess different irrigation strategies for irrigated sorghum on the heavy clay soils of the eastern Darling Downs...

The objective of the work was to understand the influence of the leaf-rolling trait on grain yield and quality, and develop wheat germplasm containing the leaf-rolling trait... The role of bulliform cells is still controversial in the literature and we are currently assessing cell anatomy for a set of twelve lines and cultivars that show different responses for leaf rolling... The commercial parents used for this work were Janz and H45...

Despite flowering earlier, mustard did not yield better than canola in 2011.. The results show the importance of early growth up to flower bud appearance to the yield potential of canola and mustard as this helps develop the sink capacity (i.e. pod number)... This study of different canola and mustard cultivars showed the improvement in yield with added nitrogen...

Assuming a single soil evaporation parameter to benchmark water use efficiency is a very coarse simplification, and possibly the main source of error in estimating water use efficiency using the French and Schultz approach... Selecting a variety to match to a time of sowing so that flowering occurs during the flowering window is an important management decision to improve yield and water use efficiency... The effect of sowing rate on water use efficiency in winter cereals is strongly influenced by the amount of soil moisture leading into spring...
